View Full Version : 89 635csi seat repair question

My driver comfort seat is worn, the leather is ripped and the padding is bad as well. I've found a matching passenger seat of the same color, but it's a passenger seat vs driver.

I've remove the seat out of my car to figure out how it's put together, and see there appears to be bolts under the seat that may be holding the bottom seat padding/leather assembly or am I just dreaming ?

My question is if it's fairly easy to swap the good padding/leather from a passenger seat onto the driver seat frame/assembly? Is it a bolt off and on type of affair or will I have to deal with hog rings etc?

Thank you !

4 X 10MM bolts hold the seat onto the frame, should be doable.

Ah, so the 10 mm bolts I saw under the seat are just holding the seat to the frame ?

Darn, I was hoping they were holding the seat bottom section to the seat frame .
